How are cheek and chin implants shaped? Are they flat or round or some other shape?
Chin and cheek implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Technically speaking, chin and cheek implants are shaped by molding the implant in the manufacturing process to the shape of real chins and cheeks from measurements obtained from skulls of real people. The chin and cheek implants that I prefer come pre molded, shaped, and sized and I will choose the implant based on what works best for the patient. The chin and cheek implants are not round or flat but anatomically shaped to best replicate the contour of the chin and cheek that the surgeon seeks to augment.
